Honolulu Fish Auction

We were lucky enough to take a tour of the Honolulu Fish Auction. It was amazing! There are only 2 auctions of its kind in the world. Fish were being brought off the boats at daybreak and we were able to see the live auction where the fish were sold to wholesalers and restaurants.

These pictures show Ahi tuna, some nearing 125 pounds. The flesh is cut and placed on small pieces of paper for the purpose of setting the starting bid. The darker red flesh brings a higher price.
